When a dressmaker who values beauty tangles with a liveryman who condemns vanity, the sparks begin to fly!
Jericho “J.T.” Tucker wants nothing to do with the new dressmaker in Coventry, Texas. He’s all too familiar with her kind–shallow women more devoted to fashion than true beauty.
Yet, except for her well-tailored clothes, this seamstress is not at all what he expected. Hannah Richards is confounded by the man who runs the livery. The unsmiling fellow riles her with his arrogant assumptions and gruff manner, while at the same time stirring her heart with unexpected acts of kindness.
Which side of Jericho Tucker reflects the real man? When Hannah decides to help Jericho’s sister catch a beau–leading to consequences neither could have foreseen–will Jericho and Hannah find a way to bridge the gap between them?
I loved this story. It ‘s a tale about a seamstress who inherited a shop in a small town. Unfortunately the first person she comes into contact with is also the one other person who wanted the shop.
What follows is a delightful tale of old fashioned love and courtship. It was a story full of humour, hardship, heartbreaking moments and above all a God given message of persistence, love and endurance.
Yes, this is a Christian book, but it didn’t force it into your face. It weaved itself nicely into the tale and is appropriate for the time of the story (think pioneers of the US).
I am a sucker for a well written good old fashioned romance, and this was one of the best I have read for a long time.
Four and a half out of five.
